Forming an unmissable icon on the Baku skyline from miles around, the Flame Towers are a trio of sinuous, blue-glass skyscrapers whose 30+ storey curves really do resemble vast flames, especially during a remarkable nightly light show. They stand across the road from a peaceful ridgetop park which has a sombre significance as a martyrs’ cemetery but is also one of the most beautiful viewpoints from which to survey the city and the opal blue sweep of Baku Bay.
